Dear Member, in looking ahead to 2021, we need to address our finances which have not been helped by the pandemic as income has basically stopped, although on the other hand, there’s been little expenditure. Our insurance had been deferred pending the re-starting of our Talks, and we must recognise that we need to pay for this before starting to meet. Reserves are good though some of this money is earmarked for a new projector, and we’d still like to buy one as and when it makes sense. Whilst our outgoings are low, and until we can properly hold an AGM, we feel it best not to either set a level for the dues nor to ask members to pay it, as our activities are limited.
We have not chased people for subscriptions this year but if any readers of this would like to make a donation then this could be done on line. To find out how to do this then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
